Who invented Escalator?

A ‘moving staircase’ was invented by Jesse Reno, of New York, USA in 1892, and it was first used on a pier at Coney Island, an American amusement park, in 1896.
It was a conveyor belt made up of wooden slats and driven by an electric motor. It was called the Reno Inclined Elevator. His had flat steps, like modern ones.
This was improved in its design by Charles See Berger in 1898 (because the original escalator was never actually built), and the Otis Elevator Company at once saw its potential use and began manufacturing it from 1899 onwards.
